Ayah of the Day:
It was We who revealed The Law (to Moses); therein was guidance and light. By its standards have been judged the Jews, by the Prophets who bowed (as in Islam) to Allah's will, by the Rabbis and the Doctors of Law; For to them was entrusted the protection of Allah's Book, and they were witnesses thereto; Therefore fear not men, but fear Me, and sell not My signs for a miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah has revealed, they are (no better than) Unbelievers. [ 5: 44]

Hadith of the Day:
Three kinds of prayers are to be granted without an iota of doubt: the prayer of an oppressed person, the prayer of a traveler and the prayer of a father for his son. [Abu Daud & Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The beginning of the knowledge is intention, then listening, then understanding, then action, then preservation and then spreading it. [Ibn al Mubarak]

Guidance of the Day:
Learning is the most precious thing you could store. He who takes up learning will never have his honor effaced. So acquire for yourself those matters of which you were once ignorant. For the beginning and the end of knowledge is happiness. The joys of knowledge, and insight are sufficient incentive for intelligent men to acquire knowledge.

Serve knowledge in a way useful to you and keep its lessons alive by praiseworthy actions. Discuss with people subjects of learning in order that you may live. Do not keep yourself away from the enlightened. If you conceal knowledge you will be forgotten. Knowledge has this condition of being contagious for the one who serves it, such that it should make all men the servants of knowledge. [Instruction of the student--The method of learning]

Food for Thought:
Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. The greater the difficulty, the more the glory in surmounting it. There are no extra ordinary men, just extra ordinary circumstances that ordinary men are forced to deal with.
